Patience the Key for Gunners


Only Brighton and Manchester City have started their Premier League campaigns with two wins from two, tonight Crystal Palace and Arsenal each bid to join them.

Arsenal had to withstand a late charge by Nottingham Forest to notch their first win last week after looking quite comfortable at 2-0 up. But Mikel Arteta’s side showed plenty of resilience and that should stand them in good stead for the season ahead.

If they’re to push Man City all the way again this season they need to win at places like Selhurst Park. The Gunners put six past the Eagles in two games last season, four at the Emirates and two on the road but they did lose 3-0 here back in April 2022 – also on a Monday night.

They’ll also be wary of the fact that Palace remain unbeaten at home since Roy Hodgson returned to the hotseat, winning three and drawing two. But those successes have come against Leicester (W), Everton (D), West Ham (W) Bournemouth (W) and Forest (D).

That said, they gave a good account of themselves in most matches against teams in the top reaches of the league. They held a rampant Man City for 78 minutes before losing 1-0 to an Erling Haaland penalty, as well as drawing with Newcastle (0-0), Liverpool (0-0) and Manchester United (1-1) so it could be a night where Arteta’s men need to be patient.

Combining a second half goal for the Gunners with an Arsenal win pays 10/11 at Bet365.
